Hampton Manor, a Victorian Gothic house surrounded by 45 acres of grounds, was originally built for Sir Robert Peel’s son. Inside, characterful original features blend with contemporary décor and the elegant dining room boasts beautiful plasterwork, oak panelling and hand-painted Chinoiserie wallpaper – at its centre is a long table crafted from one of the estate’s oak trees. Local produce – including their own organically grown vegetables – is showcased on the set tasting menu, which offers modern cooking with a classic heart and includes plenty of interesting vegetarian options. Dishes are attractively presented, with real depth of flavour and texture, while the wine list presents lesser-known wines, including some natural and organic choices. The owners and their team have a wonderfully relaxed manner, and elegant, homely bedrooms complete the picture.
